The Mission

At Heal, we believe you shouldn’t have to struggle continually with feelings of hopelessness and isolation because of your physical pain or limitation. John 8:36 says that “if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed”. That includes you! The problem is the lack of support you need to face your pain or limitation, which has left many feeling trapped and marginalized. The price Jesus paid on the cross was too high for you not to experience it in the area where you need it most. 

 

We know firsthand how physical pain and limitation can wreak havoc at a level so much deeper than just our physical bodies. That’s why we designed Heal, a ministry fully tailored to meet your unique needs. Here’s how it works: first, we encourage you to attend a Heal Retreat. They’re one hour long and are a great first step for you to begin taking steps toward your freedom in Christ. Next, browse our Tools tab and find other great resources to keep you encouraged and strengthened to continue experiencing freedom in Christ. Taking these steps will help lead you to the freedom which Jesus is longing to give you. 

 

So go ahead and sign up now for the next Retreat, subscribe to the Podcast, Watch one of our Videos, or buy one of our recommended Books so you can leave hopelessness and isolation at the foot of the cross and begin living the abundant life that only Christ can give.
